Hey all so I decided to finally upgrade to 16gb of ram after having low memory issues in my various multitasking situations but I'm having a problem with the new ram.
I'm going from my Gskill Ripjaws 8gb kit 1600mhz to a set of Corsair Vengeance pro 2400mhz 16gb kit.
When I first installed the ram I didn't touch any of the settings in the bios but even then when I went to turn it on it started but then restarted before it could get to the bios, Did that two times then booted normally.
Went into the bios made sure it was giving the ram enough voltage. The bios was reading that it was giving the ram 1.67v and the only lower setting is 1.64v wasn't sure weather to drop it or not so I left it.
Altered the timings to match the ram then tried booting again, same issue.
Let it boot and checked cpuz and it's only reading the ram at 665mhz each and the ram timings aren't what I set them at. Supposed to be 11-13-13-31 but are reading 9-9-9-24 which is the auto settings. Total ram speed is sitting at 1333mhz instead of the 2133mhz that my motherboard will allow even after I tried setting it to that it wouldn't read past 1333mhz.
So I was wondering if anyone can give me any insight as to what might be the issue I'm having.
